Lorac Los Angeles Mega PRO 4 Palette Review and Swatches | Lillee Jean
A palette that is pink by nature, has creamy mattes, and the shimmeriest of shimmers? UUHHH GET ME ONE, PRONTO! Two weeks ago Ulta was having a sale, and marked down a nearly $60.00 palette ($59.00), to $35.00 FLAT. Weekly, I like to indulge in makeup goodies to keep my feed fresh for you Jeaniez, and naturally, the Lorac Mega PRO being marked down by $24.00 had me SOLD! Below features my honest review, along with swatches, and afterthoughts. I hope each and every one of you enjoys, and I do hope everyone is having a splendid Tuesday!
*Note this retails for $59.00 currently, the sale is over!
Here is the ingredients list magnified. You can get a better idea of what is in this palette. It is NOT fragranced, at least to any noticeable level, thus I had no allergic reaction. SCORE! Carmine IS a color additive.
Hmm, dare I open this magnificent product? First things first let’s talk specs. The Lorac Mega PRO Palette 4 is nearly a $224.00 value, since one receives over 32 eyeshadows packed with different textures, feels, and even color ranges. I myself was shocked when I saw a sage, talk about rare! Anyhow, this limited edition palette exclusive to Ulta features matte, and shimmer shades that can preform wet or dry, and also can be used to define the eyes, or perhaps shade the eyes, too. With a helpful description of the eyeshadows from Ulta.com, and courtsey of Lorac, below is a copy and paste of the eyeshadow colors, and their descriptions. I will be featuring swatches if you scroll down further, and if I find a color to be described differently, it will be noted!

Packaging wise I thought the box was EXTREMELY sturdy and felt like luxury. This is actually one of the first times I’ve been SUPER excited for a palette in a while! From first glance, I knew each shade would compliment my skin tone beautifully. I mean, I have NOT seen a sage or even a deep teal color in quite some time!
When one opens up the package they will see the classic Mega PRO palette style and layout in a lux almost vintagy pink color! The palette itself felt sturdy, this, of course, is before opening, and also felt VERY durable. Below is a photo of the palette outside of the box, along with the palette opened with its sheer protective cover! Any scuffs or finger marks is due to me swatching prior to taking these photos, I just couldn’t help myself! EEK.
